Ticktock Banneker's Clock

Throughout his life, Benjamin Banneker was known and admired for his work in science, mathematics, and astronomy, just to name a few pursuits. Inspired by a pocket watch he had seen, at the age of 22 he built a striking clock based on his own drawings and using a pocketknife. This picture book biography focuses on one episode in a remarkable life.
